3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I wouldn't really know about the strictness, because I don't do things that step out of my academic contract with the school. I wouldn't know how thy would operate. Everything is pretty good as long as you follow the rules that were given to you.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't stay in the dorms, I technically don't stay on campus at all. BUT I am in the Urban Academic Village, which may be , again, "technically" on or off campus.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really see much of the Greek life out here. I hardly even know if there is one, I'm assuming that there is one just for the simple fact that this is college.

Local Atmosphere: In my eyes, it's more like a small town. I'm comfortable with the small area so that I know where things are. I'm really a country girl so It's like home to me. Way better than just being in a big city. The fact that Texas Southern University was a part of history is enough of an area attraction for me. I don't really look for things to do around the city, it's not my forte.

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is a little overwhelming for me, but the extra room and freedom is worth it. I stay in the front of the apartments so nothing goes on and I feel safer than I would be in the back of the apartments. Security is "A-1" so nothing really traumatic happens.

Parking: The parking situation at my university is pretty good in my opinion. I am both a cyclist and a car driver so if I park a good distance from my university and ride my bike around the campus all is well. Our university student government has also lower as well as made all parking decals the same price around the campus, so I cant complain there. Our permits are about $40 for any area. ticketing and fines are relatively low at about $5-20 ranging from warning to misplaced decals. We don't need a car on campus because we have trolleys that take you up and don't the 1-2 mile long campus. Availability and convenience of parking is an issue in its self at certain times of the day like from 8 am-12 pm because at those hours most people are in class.

Computers: We are not caught up technology.

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus eating is much better than on campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Our school is in the city, so housing costs are expensive for college students but they are nice and they are not far from the school.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: On campus eating sucks. There is not many real restaurants, there is many fried foods and sandwiches, no vegetable or anything.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I did not receive any loans this year, but I received scholarships.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls at school are very diverse. They range from naturally intelligent to hard working. They dress in current styles, that you see in stores as well as on tv.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I can't answer this question because I am unaware of the drugs on campus because I have never done drugs.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I don't think there is a challenge with diversity, although this is a Historically Black University, there are students of every race, religion, economic background, etc.
